What's caught our eye so far at the 2019 PGA Show for Men's golf fashion
The PGA Show started in the trunks of cars in 1954, and now covers one million square feet of trade show floor, 10 miles of booths and 1,000 golf companies exhibiting equipment, technology, fashion, merchandising and education at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Sound daunting? It is. But we’re here with sneakers laced up to find what’s new in golf apparel, footwear and accessories.
Here’s what’s caught our eye so far.
Greyson Clothiers (booth #’s 6489, 6689) has been our favorite booth for a couple year. Their space is outfitted with leather sofas, rugs and greenery making it more like a cool cabin living room than a booth at the PGA show. For this year, they’ve added a 1977 Airstream gutted and retrofitted to become the Greyson mobile showroom fondly called the Wolfstream. It’s not to be missed if you’re at the show.
Stitch Golf (booth #5043) continues to expand its product line from club covers and golf bags to apparel and functional travel gear like the Ultimate Garment Bag. Made from Stitch Golf's touring fabric, it is lightweight, waterproof and transitions from a duffle to a garment bag and back with a single zipper mechanism. The roominess and versatility of the Ultimate Garment Bag makes it ideal for a long weekend trip, or just an overnighter.
Bonobos Golf (booth #4381) recently became the apparel provider for PGA Tour Pro Justin Rose. While the men’s collection has an array of styles to take you from the course to the office, it’s the fit that defines the label. From all the promotional images we’ve seen of Rose in Bonobos, he’s wearing it really well.
Travis Mathew (booth #3673) is known for its rather lively, somewhat raucous booth at the PGA Show. I’ve heard it described as ‘a much needed injection of fun’ to the otherwise mundane trade show atmosphere. Look for creative takes on patterns and fabrications like the all over sublimation graphic on the Verge lightweight, full-zip jacket from the Broad Street collection.
Duca Del Cosma (booth #5254) brings another collection of its edgy, Euro designed golf shoes for men and women to the show. The new La Spezia for men has a classic shoe style but is bumped up with bold color accents and embossed full-grain leather. This shoe is waterproof, has a removable Arneflex insole and Airplay 6 outsole for extra comfort. The crossover style makes it wearable on and off course.
Robert Graham (booth #4750) is no stranger to the world of fashion being a true design house since 2001. Known as the American eclectic lifestyle brand, its mantra is where craftsmanship, luxury and style intertwine. If you’re looking to add upscale resort or casual wear to your mix, Robert Graham is a natural choice.
Galvin Green (booth #6161) expands its Edge collection that debuted at last year’s show and has added a new Carbon Series of premium garments with a carbon inspired theme. This collection features subtle tone-in-tone design with a technical look and all the performance attributes we’ve come to expect from a leader in the multi-layering golf apparel category.
